President Donald Trump's face photoshopped onto photo of Queen Elisabeth II

The internet photoshopped Donald Trump onto the Queen and it’s scarily convincing

Known rapist and US President elect Donald Trump behaves like a caricature of a monarch from Game of Thrones. So, naturally, someone saw it fitting to deal with this ordeal placed upon us in the form of the “leader of the free world” by giving Mr. Trump the full royal treatment.

The “royal treatment” is an open ended concept. In this instance, it refers to photoshopping Trump into full drag as Queen Elisabeth II. Because why not.

Getting down with start-ups: 11 signs you’re taking Slush a bit too seriously

This guy might be overdoing it
The way the Slush startup conference brings capital and mindshare to the Helsinki tech startup scene is well established and undisputable. As someone who works for Finnish tech companies, I have nothing but praise for how Slush mixes geeks with business people in different stages of their careers. If you’re into business, you should attend and just feel the magic of Finnish people turning talkative and creative.

At Ink Tank, we’re strictly anti Jante law, which is to say we don’t subscribe to the old Nordic small-town norm that believing in yourself is next to a deadly sin. However, at some point, everything becomes a cliche. For the past couple of years, the media circus around Slush has turned annoying enough to warrant a friendly slap every now and then.

So, we’ll help you navigate the awesomeness of Slush with a guide that points out just how to know you’ve been slurping a bit too much of that sweet, refreshing tech buzz Kool-Aid.

The most burning social media reactions to the Trump election victory are savage

This is Fine meme from Gunshow comic

 

Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States of America.

President Donald Trump

The next Leader of the Free World

During his entire campaign this election season, Mr Trump unraveled and gave voters plenty of advance notice of the inner landscape of his grotesque orange appearance serial rapist manchild. Trump broadcasts the hallmarks of deep insecurities and psychiatric pathologies, which would weed him out of important, non-elected positions in government. Yet, he won the 2016 US presidential race on the collegial vote.

Not only that, Trump built his success on an openly extreme-right platform of unmoderated bigotry and sexism, while boasting about his exploitative business career. The next US president is a racist demagogue, who knows how to blow all the dogwhistles, to reach into the racial paranoia of rural America, a slipping middle class and petty, suburban bourgeoisie. He aims to isolate the United States, roll back the clock on civil rights, women’s reproductive rights, minority issues and political attempts to address climate change.

Needless to say, the at best mediocre Obama presidency is likely to look stunningly gorgeous compared to what’s in store for the US or the rest of the world. It’s alright to be angry at both Trump himself and the drooling senility of the Democratic National Congress that failed to read the wider anti-elite sentiment of a Western populist movement.

So, we’ve collected some of the best commentary to be found on social media before, during the day after the election. Please share any other great stuff you’ve found in the comments below.
